This proposal explores the programmatic potential of semi-conditioned space by weaving together equal amounts of fully enclosed and partially enclosed volumes to form four flexible single family units. The fourplex celebrates the LA climate while rethinking how Angelenos inhabit, define, and ascribe value to the space between space.
